The Triple Federation was a confederation of the three Amalfitan city-states of Marvisia, Saruvia and Trasimene. Created in the aftermath of the War of Cocra in the mid-5th century, it existed until the Accords of Lisaris formed the Confederation of Amalphia in 834 after the War of Ten Cities. Each city appointed five men to the conclave at which they elected one Princeps to command their armies. The Triple Federation's innovative structure and combined capabilities allowed it to dominate the Amalphian plain for nearly four centuries until the Carsine League was drawn up along similar lines under the leadership of the city-state of Talox.
